The Conquest Will Not Be Photographed

BLUF: File Zack and Wyatt Vinci former football turn fancies under “right said Fred meets Gordie Lockbaum if Lockbaum’s mother’s maiden name was Licht”
edit to add or prologue, 2020 hind-sigh: I’ve updated this a couple years later, partly because the video link decayed; Vinci is my 3rd favorite Wesleyan football player all time behind (so to speak) Greg Zlotnick the kicker and my high school classmate — from Beth Am, and maybe now that Shedroff N agrees with me that future governor JB Pritzker once sang “If I Were A Rich Man” to wild applause — and Murphy Halliburton’s step son Rocko or Ricky or something, Two Ton Tony Gallento, who came (!) in as a hot shot QB. The Vinci, Night or Day, transferred to the Pac 10 or in his or their case 12 Pac. I met them near Stanford on a game day. Did I almost say “gay dame”? And lastly — although I started this on June 28, 2020 to write about Black Lives Matter and “blacks” versus “Blacks” style-wise and something based on Liverpool and Mo Salah — running down the field vs oh sitting down — and maybe as a leitmotif Robin DG Kelley op ed not on Monk and the COINTELPRO agent who posed as a janitor for a few weeks to count how many times Monk or Scher said “Nairobi” or “disrobe, please” — I would rather, even as a completely straight and rarely homophobic privileged, blessed and circumspect Weiss male, see Wyatt and Zach all greased up and ready to lead — I almost said all leased up and ready to greed — greet — than Tony and JB Pritzker. No “buy” “sell” or “holds” barred.


Capture of a camera shy budding media group: I tried this with Jesse Williams to lesser affect.

I enjoyed rapping with the twin, book-reading budding media gurus from Vancouver via New Jersey and La La. They declined my photo request, but apparently are all over social media.

One played with Robert Woods, one tackled him. The other tackled McCaffrey — Wild Calf — on special teams. One read Shakti Gawain, and took notes, the other Jordan Peterson.

I bought Frederick Douglass bio – Blight, 2018- but D or N claimed I was not an “agitator” to them.

Stay tuned.

Part II: Look, guys: if you’re going to strip down, grease up, and do a combination of yoga and hip-hop moves, you cannot control strangers popping you —is that a word ?—paparazzi style in malls. You are Zach and Wyatt Vinci from Central Jersey and you changed your names to Latin words for “Day” and “Night”.
